Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC)
The development of futuristic materials for use in ships, aircraft and combat vehicles is now a reality, with the establishment of the Defence Materials Technology Centre (DMTC).
The DMTC is the first centre of its kind, and will bring together some of Australia’s brightest talents in the field of materials technology research.
Participants such as Bluescope Steel, BAE Systems, Thales Australia, GKN Aerospace, Surface Technology Coatings, ANSTO, Wollongong University and Queensland University have been unstinting in their commitment and co-operation.
A board of directors has been elected, and Dr Mark Hodge has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer, with effect 30 June 2008.  The DMTC officially commenced operations on 10 June on the signing of the Commonwealth Agreement, and will open its doors at the beginning of July.
